Hidden Objective sub challenge one

Hidden Objective sub challenge one

It's about the crucial cargo submarine challenge mission (the first one)
I  destroyed every cargos with my deck gun the ca  cl and two dds  by torpedos.
There was only one ijn pt boat that suddently disapeard before i could sink it with my aa guns.
I had the other one but i can't still complete the hidden objective .
There is a ? question mark saying me failed on hidden objective.

Do i have to destroy the two pt boats aswell ?

The best way to destroy dds is letting them rush you (lure them to your back)  till they reach 0.1-00 miles at periscope depth then suddently going to surface at height where the torps will hit the buldge. launch two torpedoes quickly and go back at level two depth. I manage to not going fully at surface to avoid the gun hits. the depth charge won't reach me cause the destroyer ,will be dead by the time.

I tryed the same method that work aswell by going fully forward at periscope depth
When the destroyer is at a 0.2 -0.1 distance i'm going to use my backward engine I reach 0.0-0.1 miles i launch two torps from below the surface.

About the second mission where catalina and tb aircraft try to hit me with depth charge
I found the best way was going to surface firing with AA guns.
Then going to full depth when all planes are destroyed will let me avoid the ptboats depth charge.
I'm going to find the cl then destroy it
I take control of my  other sub to destroy the dds.

I have full time to take care of the pt boats with my two subs.
I'm using my main deck gun predicting where bullets will land.

The essex is impossible to hit with deck guns so i use torps while surfacing cause no more surface ships will get me ^^

Re: Hidden Objective sub challenge one

Hidden objectives for Crucial Cargo are:

- Destroy the convoy’s warship escort (1)

- Sink all the cargo ships in the area (2)

It's not so easy to destroy japanese PT Boats using submarine artillery, because they are armed with artillery too!

About that second mission (which in fact is third mission from Submarine Challanges ae) Coup de Grace. I didn't played it since a years, but that what i remember it was not so easy for newbie like I was in these days. Hidden objective for that mission is: -Sink the DeHaven .

And that what I can remember, after some fails i used they way you described here to take a win. Destroy planes with AA machine gun, sink PT Boats, then play with the rest of ships ab

I am playing Midway as EST_PL
I am playing Pacific as PL EST PL

  • N_Trainz : No it was created by multiple authors from around the world. I just made it so its actually a mod instead of a complete game that's about 7GB in size. The readme file that is displayed can give you more info about the mod
  • Runsva : hey ntrainz did u make this mod all by yourself?
  • N_Trainz : If you need any other help, just shout out and I'll try to get back as soon as possible
  • N_Trainz : Its not a problem :D I do thank you for waiting for a long time to get the mod. Again hope you enjoy the mod and the other fun features it comes with
  • Legendary Da : I don't know how many times I said that, but thank you so much for your work. Considering how much time making an installer, making it work and uploading it to different servers, I thank you again for the effort you put in this. :D
  • N_Trainz : Legendary Da: Here it is, installers works this time and Moddb won't accept it as they say its too large to upload, so its on my Google Drive and here is the link, hope you enjoy it «link»
  • Legendary Da : I had guessed it was about the wrong area, though I still wondered why it had been removed. Thanks for taking your time to make something better for the community. Take as much time as you require, though; life still comes first.
  • N_Trainz : Actually it was removed by me for 2 reasons; 1. was it was uploaded in the wrong area and 2. the installer didn't autp - detect the disk version, only the Steam version (since that is what I have). Going to remake it so if you won't mind a but longer wat that'll be appreciated
  • Legendary Da : Thanks soo much for the mod, I couldn't access to the Internet lately so I couldn't write a reply. Btw, the mod is removed from ModDB, is it taken down, or you removed it yourself? Either way, thanks for the awesome work (at least for providing it) :D
  • N_Trainz : What game and mod are you dealing with?
  • Runsva : Can someone PLEASE help me i can't install anything on my game it just keeps crashing!!
  • N_Trainz : Legendary Da: Its now live on Moddb and here is the link, requires a Batlestations Midway game to be installed to work «link» - midway - skinpack/addons/international - bsm - collection - light - version Enjoy
  • Runsva : are we still talikg about the zyy modding pack??
  • N_Trainz : Yeah I wanted to do this, but the installers were being a pain giving me errors about something. I finally got it working, and just figured out how to make the updater now since it'll be two parts with one containing the misc files and the other mostly the mpak files. It'll be a stand - alone DLC mod just like the Bismarck Mission Pack was. Like I said I plan to have it all completed and uploaded by this weekend
  • Legendary Da : No, no, not problem at all; I am already grateful that you were thinking about this subject, I can wait as long as you need to. Thanks for the help (again), and feel no need to rush this subject; we all know that the life comes first. :)
  • N_Trainz : Hope you won't mind the wait, it'll be worth it if you ask me, and yes I do understand that you can't download due to that cap Mege has. I heard the PM was down, but haven't tried it as I been busy helping the BSmodHQ team with things and then those that are life - in - general.
  • N_Trainz : To Legendary Da: I been trying to work on that actually, what I'm experiencing is the pack size> I already made it a light version of the mod, so hopefully this weekend maybe, might be sooner
  • Legendary Da : To N_Trainz: So, um... I can't exactly download from Mega for some reason; so could u upload that mod to Moddb? I am sorry for making extra work for you, and I TOTALLY understand if u can't upload it again; so, do as you want; I just wanted to say somehow I couldn't dl the mod (btw, why isn't the PM working?). U don't have to post the link either; I'll find it from the site if u upload it. Thanks whatever u do, and so sorry for the extra wish. :/
  • Runsva : Anyone there??
  • Runsva : That is on the zyy modding pack v1.0.3 forum.
